There are two main reasons juices for kidney cleanse are so popular:
Absorption & Hydration: The juice form makes it easier for the body to quickly digest and absorb the nutrients. Since juices are usually high in essential electrolytes and minerals, they can hydrate your body and help your kidneys flush excess water and toxins.
Taste: Juices recipes usually taste great to most people. Better than the actual solid vegetables used. Enjoying your cleanse and the taste of the recipes is something we take very seriously at Cleanse Joy. (Hence, the JOY part). In fact, it is one of our core values! If the recipe doesn’t make you happy, we do not use it.
It is best to drink the kidney cleanse juice on an empty stomach, when you still didn’t eat solid foods that day.
Run the celery, carrots, cucumbers, beet, apple and orange through a juicer.
Kidney Cleanse Juice : Top Tips From Our Members
The kidney cleanse juice recipe is one of our best and most popular recipes. Our members like the way it tastes, and the way it makes them feel. Especially when you drink it in the morning instead of your coffee or meal.
With that said, there are a few popular ways you can do to improve the recipe and enhance your results further. Here are the top suggestions from our members, with our answers to the FAQ:
The formula combines science proven kidney cleansing herbs that have been used traditionally for many generation to support kidneys health. It is one of the only kidney support supplement that is certified organic. Purity and potency matters. Especially, when you try to cleanse your body from toxins.
Both safe and effective, many of our members find it a quick and easy way to naturally support your kidneys. Just add to this juice or when busy, to your water.
Initial research data suggests that coconut water may be effective phytotherapy against kidney stones.
So, while more studies are needed before the medical community will make a decision, If you already like to drink coconut water, you may want to mix 250-500 ml with your kidney cleanse juice. Just make sure there are no added sugars or other ingredients. We are talking about 100% fresh coconut water.
Replace the Orange with Pineapple
If you are lucky enough and can get fresh pineapple at your local store, you can replace the orange juice with pineapple. Use 1 cup of pineapple chunks in this juice recipe.
Watermelon: Is it good for your kidneys?
Many kidney cleanse juice recipes like to add watermelon and melon. In our opinion however, it is much better to eat then.
The main reason is due to their high water (92%) and sugar content. They are very hydrating, fast absorbing and sweet on their own. Just like nature intended. So, if you like to eat watermelons or melons, continue to do so. Use the fruits you do not always like to eat for juices.
Parsley & Cilantro
Parsley and cilantro are known kidney cleanse herbs. They do not however, taste great in juice or smoothies.
A few options here:
If you like the way parsley and cilantro taste, add them to your meals. For example, with salsa, hummus, tahini, or salads.
Have them in a shot. We got so many requests on this topic, we developed the Parsley – cilantro shot. Just FYI, before you try, it is not as tasty as the recipe above. Not even close. But, surprisingly, many of our members still like it.
Rotate your Greens & Fruits
Lastly, when it comes to juices, smoothies and healthy eating, we always recommend to experiment and rotate your foods, greens, veggies and fruits. This helps provide your body with high variety of nutrients, and prevent sensitivities. It also makes your taste buds happy. Variety is the spice of life.

3 day juice cleanse Research analysis: CleanseJoy Editorial Team Supplements reviewed: Dr. David Minkoff, M.D. Dr. Edward Group, DC, NP
3 day juice cleanse: detox, nourish, rebuild
The 3 day juice cleanse is designed to detox, cleanse, eliminate toxins and at the same time, nourish your body with nutrients that can help to repair and regenerate.
The 3 day juice cleanse also makes an excellent healthy option to jumpstart your weight loss plan and to give your digestive system a break from having to digest solid foods.
The plan uses evidence based diy juices recipes you can easily make at home from natural whole foods and herbs that have a long history of safe traditional use backed up by science. We included the complete nutritional facts for each juice recipe.
Important: Safety comes first! As in all our cleansing and detox recipes, special consideration was given to both safety and effectiveness. So you get the best results and benefits without side effects, a healing crisis or other discomforts.
Make sure to read the entire plan as we cover common mistakes and FAQ.
The idea of juice cleanse, juice fasting or liquid cleanses is simple. You replace meals with healthy juices. This gives your digestive system a break from having to process solid food, and at the same time nourishes your body with vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals your body can easily digest and utilize.
When you make juices, you basically break down veggies and fruits into fiber and juice. You drink the juice & pulp without the fiber. This way, your body can digest and absorb the nutrients from the juice easier and quicker.
Another reason juice cleanses are so popular, is that juices usually taste better to most people, compared to eating whole veggies or fruits by themselves.
The Night Before: Overnight Colon Cleanse Juice
Main functions: cleanses and flushes your digestive system. Minimize healing crises and side effects during the cleanse.
When: the night before the 3 day juice cleanse, and every day during the cleanse, right before bedtime.
The 3 day juice cleanse starts the night before with the overnight colon cleanse drink. This famous juice recipe is one of the most effective natural remedies you can do at home, to quickly and safely get rid of accumulated waste buildup from the colon while you sleep.
Dr. Group Oxy-powder (Oxygen colon cleanse). (4-8 capsules). Releases natural oxygen in the colon to loosen accumulated waste buildup. This allows the body to easily eliminate the waste though the stool and completely cleanse the colon. Natural, gentle and very effective.
Lemon juice (from ½ lemon). Stimulates digestion, detox the body and help support the kidneys and liver.
Raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar (1 teaspoon). Natural ability to flush out toxins from the body. The cloudy part, also called “the mother”, has naturally occurring good bacteria that can support gut health.
Mix the lemon juice and apple cider vinegar with 16 ounces distilled or spring water.
Drink before bedtime on an empty stomach away from any foods or other supplements.
Expect the next day to have a series of bowel movements. First time users usually report large amount of stored waste.
Most people report “feeling lighter”, noticeably flatter stomach, reduced bloating, more energy, higher clarity and better bowel movements and digestion.
Update: We have been hearing from many people who prefer not to drink lemon or apple cider vinegar right before bedtime. These are optional. You can still take Oxy-powder with just water without the lemon and apple cider vinegar.
Main functions: cleanses & hydrates the body. When: morning and during the day.
The lemon juice cleanse drink is based on the famous ancient ayurvedic practice of drinking lemon juice in warm water on an empty stomach. This simple recipe can help to stimulate digestion and detox the body.
To make the lemon juice cleanse drink, squeeze the juice of ½ organic lemon into 16 ounces of warm spring or alkaline water. You can also add a few drops of stevia to sweeten the drink if needed.
Many people find it helpful to make more servings and drink more in the morning and throughout the day.
Update: An Important Note about Protein & Cleansing
You may have noticed that the 3 Day Juice Cleanse is low in protein.
We have been getting many questions and concerns about this topic. Is it OK to be on a low protein during a cleanse?
If you plan to follow the cleanse for just a few days, such as this 3 day plan, then, the answer is: yes, it is OK.
On the other hand, many people make this mistake of doing a juice cleanse or other low protein diets for several weeks. For most people, this is NOT recommended for the following reasons:
Tissue repair: If you don’t eat enough protein, your body may lack amino acids needed to repair its tissues. Think about your muscles, skin, hair, nails, organs, even your bones! They are all made our of protein and need enough amino acids. Just to give you an idea, 50% of your bones are made of protein.
Enzymes & Hormones: Other than tissue repair, amino acids are essential in order to support your brain, enzymatic and hormonal systems. For example, different amino acids are needed for healthy libido, mood, sleep, and memory.
Detoxification: Lastly, certain amino acids play a key role in detoxification. So, if you go too low, you may be at a risk for impaired detoxification. Exactly the opposite what you are trying to achieve!
Protein options for cleansing and low protein diets
If for some reason you need to go on a longer cleanse or a low protein diet, or if you suspect your body doesn’t digest protein very well, you may want to add essential amino acids (EAA) into your diet.
Dr. Minkoff’s Perfect Aminos is our preferred source, as they are shown in research to have a 99% utilization rate. This is 3-6 times better than other proteins or amino acids formulas. Quite remarkable, considering that your body makes no effort at all in order to digest or use these, while other protein sources require a significant digestion effort.
Just like all the products we recommend, Dr. Minkoff’s Perfect Aminos are 100% vegan, pure, Non-GMO. They have no sugars, carbs, or other impurities. In fact, Dr. Minkoff often prescribed these to his patients who suffer from digestive issues or heavy toxins.

Why pineapple & cucumbers?

Bromelain, the enzyme found in pineapple, is well known for its natural ability to reduce swelling and inflammation. Multiple studies suggest that Bromelain may offer a safe and effective natural way to decrease inflammation in the body [1,2].
Cucumbers have a long history of medicinal use since ancient times. Due to their high water content, they make an excellent choice to hydrate the body and skin. The cleansing action of cucumbers can also help the body to remove accumulated pockets of old waste materials and chemical toxins .

Healthy Coffee Alternatives & Energy During The Cleanse
If you are looking to cut down your coffee intake, naturally boost your energy without any stimulants, or help your body adapt to stress, certain herbs such as ginseng, maca (root) and ashwagandha can offer a safe natural and effective way.
We have had great results in many of our cleansing protocols with Dr. Group’s Ginseng Fuzion which includes active ginseng extracts complex, maca, and the anti stress (adaptogenic) herb ashwagandha.
To use: add 2 droppers to your juices or drinks just before drinking when needed, up to 3 times a day.
Ginseng is well known for its ability to naturally stimulate energy production in the muscles, improve fat metabolism, reduce appetite, and boost the immune system function [4,5,6] .
ashwagandha: Several studies found that ashwagandha can decrease body fat, increase lean muscle mass, support healthy body weight management and reduce stress and anxiety [7,8].
